Abstract

Lipomas are the most commonly occurring mesenchymal tumors. We report a technique used to manage a patient with a large dumbbell-shaped pelvic lipoma passing through the obturator foramen. Using the combined expertise of an orthopedic and pelvic surgeon, successful and safe removal of this benign dumbbell-shaped pelvic lipoma was achieved.
